Future Disruptors Raises Awareness And Funding for Music And Arts Education

June 25, 2017

When I’m not blogging here, I am an arts educator in South Central. I teach Performing Arts in a charter school and during the summer I teach art to kids. It’s the greatest work I do. I was a child performer from the age of 6 on and when I tell you that nothing is more important than giving kids the space to find themselves creatively – I mean it – from first hand experience as both an artist and teacher.

I was blown away today at the Future Disruptors event at The Comedy Store, where proceeds will benefit the Ovation Music Fund, a 501(c)(3) public charity that provides music education scholarships for low income children at music schools across the USA. www.ovationmusicfund.org

This showcase of rising talent was the start of a movement designed to inspire parents, help children find their creative voices and combat the underfunding of the Arts in schools.

We saw all my kids’ favorite Disney and Nickelodeon. Not to mention the amazing headlining band, Heffron Drive, featuring Kendall Schmidt (Big Time Rush) and Dustin Belt, with Demian Arriaga on percussion.

Our hearts were thumping watching this talented crew of rising young stars. The great news is this event will be happening twice a year and it’ll be building more momentum with even more amazing talent. Today we saw these gems.

The ORGANIC PHARMACY has always been a huge fave of mine. Their products are simply top notch.

Stepping into this clean, minimal space brings me great joy. However, it’s smelling and feeling every single on of their products that sends me into bliss.

Vitamin Vape : A Better Way To B, B12 that is!

June 23, 2017

Imagine getting to vape your vitamins? Well, it’s here, VITAMIN VAPE – a new way to get your B12.

Each vaporizer contains 14 servings of B12. An injection typically only has 1000 mcg of B12.

These are so handy, fun, and totally genius, the only problem is stopping at the recommended dose of 5 inhalations a day.

Here’s a bunch of stuff that I pulled from the website because it sounds so much better they way they explain it!

The Science Behind Vitamin B12

Vitamin B12 is an extremely important part of your dietary intake.

According to the National Institute of Health: “Vitamin B12 is a nutrient that helps keep the body’s nerve and blood cells healthy and helps make DNA, the genetic material in all cells. Vitamin B12 also helps prevent a type of anemia called megaloblastic anemia that makes people tired and weak [1].”

The UK Vegan Society, the Vegetarian Resource Group, and the Physicians Committee for Responsible Medicine, among others, recommend that vegans either consistently eat B12-fortified foods or take a daily or weekly B12 supplement to meet the recommended intake.

In other words, it’s very important you get enough vitamin B12 in your body.

How to verify how well VitaminVape works for you?

In order to verify its effectiveness for yourself, you can follow some simple steps below:

  1. Consult your Doctor. Buy vitamin B12 blood tests at your local Quest or Labcorp testing lab.
  2. Go without B12 supplementation for 1 week (get your Doctor’s permission first) to establish your baseline B12 levels.
  3. Get your first B12 blood test performed.
  4. Inhale 10 puffs of VITAMINVAPE.
  5. Wait 5 minutes.
  6. Get your second B12 blood test performed.
  7. Repeat 4-6 for as many days as you’d like.
  8. Plot the results on a chart and see how well it worked for you!

The data here is clear again, using VitaminVape shows immediate B12 absorption into the blood though individual results may vary.

Simple, high-quality ingredients you can recognize and trust: 

  • Vitamin B12 (Cyanocobalamin)
  • Vegetable Glycerin USP
  • Distilled Water
  • Organic Fruit Flavor Extract (Water, Organic Ethyl Alcohol, and Natural Flavors)
  • Organic Vanilla Extract (Organic Vanilla Beans, Organic Ethyl Alcohol, Organic Cane Sugar)
  • Vegan, Gluten-Free

VITAMINVAPE is vegan, gluten-free, and made with all-American ingredients.

It never contains nicotine, tobacco, propylene glycol, diacetyl, acetyl propionyl, or cannabinoids,

And of course, it really works !!

Academic Literature on B12 Inhalation

Peer-reviewed studies going back over half a century indicate that inhalation is an extremely effective way of absorbing vitamin B12 [4] [5] [6]. After only one dose they indicate immediate absorption [4]:

There are a couple of key reasons that vitamin B12 works so well for inhalation. One reason is that your body only needs a small amount of vitamin B12 everyday [1], so you can inhale it in 10-20 puffs. That’s not true with a lot of other vitamins, like vitamin C, which would take thousands of puffs. Another reason is that vitamin B12 is NOT sensitive to the heat associated with vaporizing [3].

Ultimately, however, the existing data speaks for itself when it comes to the efficacy of B12 inhalation. It is many times more efficient than pill absorption, and comparable only to injections.

Research using VitaminVape

Our own research with VitaminVape confirms very similar results, sustained over days of once-daily use:

The price is $20 for 1 vape pen, $45 for 3, $100 for 10. WORTH IT!!

7 Steps to Happiness from be&behappy.

June 21, 2017

WHO WANT’S TO BE MY HAPPINESS BUDDY?!! LET’S DO THIS!! PLEASE EMAIL ME AND I WILL DO IT WITH YOU!

The next challenge starts on July 7th and all Groomed LA readers will receive a 20% discount when you use code GROOMEDLA20 at check out! https://beandbehappy.com/product/detox-challenge/

 Is It possible to achieve a happier you in 7 days?

(SHE LOOKS REALLY FRICKEN HAPPY!)

Living in big cities gets hectic. We know. Summer is officially here, calendars are not only filled with the regular day job, but it gets filled with more happy hours, beach days, pool parties, action packed vacations, and so much more. Before you know it you’re doing so much and your body, mind and soul disconnects from each other and you find yourself overwhelmed and lost. When you’ve hit the point you’ll feel exhausted, overwhelmed and at even unhappy. Luckily, there’s something you have that can change it.

It’s called a choice, and today, you can choose to be happy.

There’s a True Detox Challenge out there, and no, it doesn’t require you to binge on lemon, vinegar and cookies.

be&behappy wants you to have best summer (so keep reading to find true happiness is 7 days…)

be&behappy is a group of happiness experts who have practiced years of Ayurvedic health. They provide the necessary tools and support to help you rediscover the happiness of the body, mind and soul!

  1. Day One: Release what’s negative in your life. This may be hard because that negativity can be a something or a someone. It’s not something you can do overnight, but the first step to letting go is a step closer to happiness.
  2. Day Two: Identify what gives you peace. To be peaceful is to be calm in your heart and mind. Ask yourself what is it that brings you peace? Take a moment to think deeply and go after it!
  3. Day Three: Always look on the brighter side. Is the glass half empty or is it half full? When you turn a negative into a positive or look for a solution rather than the problem, you will find yourself closer to happiness and contentment.
  4. Day Four: Express gratitude. There are so many things to be grateful for. It could be for the little things like sunshine or the big things like an amazing family and a great group of friends. Identify what it is you’re grateful for!
  5. Day Five: Be your own cheerleader. Daily. Tell yourself you are awesome. Recognize that there is only one you and you have purpose! Don’t only tell yourself, but believe
  6. Day Six: It’s all about being present. Focus on the here and now. Don’t ruminate over the past and don’t worry about the future. What matters is what are you doing to make improve yourself right this very second.
  7. Day Seven: Reward yourself and celebrate you. Life is all about the little things that make a HUGE difference. The fact that you took a step to release what’s negative is a victory, the fact that you decided to eat one more serving of fruits and vegetables is a victory. These things are great things and they should be recognized and rewarded.

These are just a few ways to achieve happiness. The True Detox Challenge gives you a chance to join a challenge with people all over the world. Before you convince yourself that you’re not happy, you have the choice to be otherwise.
